"You break it, you buy it."

I know Colin Powell will be most remembered for his UN speach justifying the Iraq invasion, but I will always remember his quote of warning about the very same invasion.

The consequences of the invasions are clear, and do not seem to be improving, no matter what manifestaion of 'policy' Bush and his team come up with.
This morning's news out of Iraq:

BAGHDAD - Twenty beheaded bodies were discovered Thursday on the banks of the Tigris River southeast of Baghdad, while a parked car bomb killed another 20 people in one of the capital's busy outdoor bus stations, police said.

The beheaded remains were found in the Sunni Muslim village of Um al-Abeed, near the city of Salman Pak, which lies 14 miles southeast of Baghdad.

The bodies — all men aged 20 to 40 years old — had their hands and legs bound, and some of the heads were found next to the bodies, two officers said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.

Meanwhile, a parked car bomb ripped through a crowded transport hub in southwest Baghdad's Baiyaa neighborhood at morning rush hour, killing at least 20 people and wounding more than 50, another officer said on the same condition.

Many of the victims had been lining up for buses, awaiting a ride to work. Some 40 minibuses were incinerated in the explosion, police said.

For all the devastation he has wrought, I don't think we should let George W. Bush leave office at the end of his term. Of course we cannot keep him on as President. He should become the new mayor of Baghdad. Let him see what he has done close up.
